Created by world-renown choreographer and author of the ground-breaking book The Art of Persian Dance, this performance features Shahrzad Dance Company’s interactive and educational program on Persian Dance, an ancient art form shrouded in mystery! Elegant and flowing, yet rhythmic and inspiring, this visual journey will showcase the essence of Persian culture, its connection to nature and the cosmos. Using Persian dance technique with its unique body positions, angles, and dynamics that are intrinsic to Persian aesthetics, the company dancers embody natural elements such as fire, earth, and sky. Recommended for children ages 5 and up. 

This program honors the diverse cultures, traditions and histories of Southwest Asian and North African heritage.
